New York City’s subways are full of mysteries and legends, and a quick search around the Internet (if you know where to look) can turn up tons of information about the rich world that millions of straphangers hurtle through every day. Much of this information about the subways tends to present itself on a linear grid, as does the information about New York’s streets on websites like New York Songlines; perhaps the rational design of Manhattan’s streets created this structure. The latest of this linear tradition is Adam Chang‘s NY Train Project, which combines fun facts with a clean, fresh Javascript interface whose animated elements suggest the experience of flying through the tunnels yourself.
